Data Backup And Office 365: There’s Something You Should Know

We’ve already discussed BackOnline, our comprehensive yet simple solution for online data backup and full disaster recovery. But because so many of you use Office 365 within your organisations, we thought we’d use this post to talk about BackOnline and how it works to improve Microsoft’s range of subscription services.

When it comes to cloud computing and data protection, there is a shared responsibility between the cloud service provider (CSP) and the customer. Microsoft’s Service Agreement details why this is so important:

“We strive to keep the Services up and running; however, all online services suffer occasional disruptions and outages and Microsoft is not liable for any disruption or loss you may suffer as a result. In the event of an outage, you may not be able to retrieve Your Content or Data that you’ve stored. We recommend that you regularly backup Your Content and Data that you store on the Services or store using Third-Party Apps and Services.”

That’s why data backup through a service like BackOnline is required. Millions of organisations around the world have adopted Office 365 services. They’ve done so with the belief that data running in the cloud is always backed up. They don’t imagine for a minute that their data in the cloud could ever be inaccessible. After all, doesn’t Microsoft guarantee 99.9% uptime? Shouldn’t Office 365 data be accessible at all times?

You need to securely backup Office 365 data to another location for a variety of reasons:

  • to follow the 3-2-1 rule of backup
  • to mitigate against accidental or intentional deletion (of users, email or documents)
  • to avoid threats from malware and viruses
  • to meet internal policies and compliance requirements
  • most importantly, to give you the peace of mind that you’ll be able to restore your users data when needed

TIMG’s data backup and disaster recovery service harnesses the power of Veeam. Veeam Backup for Microsoft Office 365 enables organisations to eliminate the risk of losing access to Office 365 data and ensures availability for your users.
